Missions Ministry

We offer multiple opportunities to serve our local community through hands on opportunities. We also designate a portion of our budget to local non-profits.


"And the King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.' " Matthew 25:40

PB&Js + God's Love

When does a peanut butter and jelly sandwich represent something more than a part of a meal? For many of us, food is taken for granted. We have an abundance. PB&J's are more of a snack, something from our childhood. But for many of our local neighbors, any food is a blessing.


San Pedro continues to prepare and deliver food through the efforts of our Catholic brothers and sisters at Saint Francis of Assisi. You can RSVP for the next month opportunity HERE.


The ministry is called Mobile Loaves and Fishes - a ministry of serving lunches and dinners to local non-profits, immigrant communities, and shelters. San Pedro Presbyterian serves at Mobile Loaves and Fishes on the third Friday of every month, both preparing meals and delivering them to local apartment communities. The time commitment is only a few hours, families can serve with children.

CAM Backpack Celebration!

San Pedro members helped 55 students this year with a gift of a backpack and school supplies! Each one of these backpacks costs about $100.00. That's $5,500.00 in support of our local community. That is truly amazing! Thanks to everyone who sponsored a backpack for a student. Our mission work depends on each one of you!

San Pedro serves 125 meals - Mobile Loaves

San Pedro's mission team helped feed 125 meals to local folks through the Mobile Loaves and Fishes ministry in June. Clothing and hygiene items also went out to three different locations. Mobile Loaves and Fishes is a non-profit focused on helping local communities in a variety of ways. San Pedro is primarily involved with their mobile food distribution efforts.


You can sign up to help once a month by reserving your spot to serve at the narthex outside the sanctuary on any given Sunday. Read more about Mobile Loaves and Fishes HERE.

Meals on Wheels at San Pedro

Current statistics confirm the average life expectancy for Americans at a record high of 79 years. As people get older, even the most independent among us may experience physical declines or financial hardship that strips away independence. Add to that an increase in geographic mobility of our families, and the result is millions of seniors left behind, hungry and alone. 


Meals on Wheels is a national non-profit who deliver meals for people in need and/or who can not leave their homes. The Missions Committee at San Pedro has asked the Session to approve the use of our building as a pick up site for local Meals on Wheels drivers. The Session unanimously approved the request in April. Visitors to our campus will see signs outside the Arnold Building that serve as markers for the drivers who pick up meals Monday through Friday.


We are able to offer our building to other non-profits because of the generous donations of our members; your gifts keep our buildings in good condition and available for others in our community.

Children's Home expansion update

San Pedro PC's own Gene Trevino represented our Missions Team at the recent expansion of Presbyterian Children's Homes and Services event. The official notice reads,


Greeting from PCHAS! 


It is with great joy that we recently celebrated the expansion of our San Antonio campus. 


The combined campaigns of “Epiphany: Standing in the Presence of Christ Capital Campaign” and the “Home Sweet Home Capital Campaign” secured more than $5 million for this expansion in South Texas. This will allow PCHAS to serve more than twice the number of single parents and children along with young adults moving into self-sufficiency, many of whom have aged out of foster care. 


The San Antonio Express News published this article about one of our former clients and the campus updates, as well as the recent ribbon-cutting event.


Please feel free to contact me as your liaison to PCHAS and save the date of Wednesday, October 19, 2022 for the annual San Antonio luncheon.
